Siemens supplies CSP parabolic trouch receivers to India

Siemens Energy will supply its universal vaccum air collector UVAC 2010 solar receivers for a parabolic trough concentrating solar power (CSP) plant in Rajasthan, India, for Shiram EPC Ltd.


Siemens will supply over 17,000 solar receivers, which will generate all of the heat for the 50 MW CSP facility. Startup for the solar plant is scheduled for spring 2013.


The Abhijeet CSP plant is being constructed as part of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM), the Indian Government's ongoing programme for promoting solar power. The programme envisages installing up to 20 GW of solar power capacity in India by the year 2020.


"We view this first order from Shiram EPC Limited to be a demonstration of their trust in our know-how and technology," says Shmuel Fledel, CEO of Siemens Solar Thermal Energy Business Unit.


"The Indian CSP market is rapidly developing, and with this step we strengthen our business for CSP technology."


Siemens has already been awarded three orders to supply a total of four steam turbine generator units for solar thermal power plants in Rajasthan, including a steam turbine generator unit for the Abhijeet CSP plant.
